Let’s turn it on

We engage shoppers to make them care, act and share. It starts with clicks and trips. Reviews. Comparisons. Recommendations. They find it in-store. They research for more peace-of-mind. Then ring! Your shopper has become a buyer, but it doesn’t stop there. They tweet and update. They post and pin. You’ve got new reviews and recommendations.
Now, your brand is on.

Our Philosophy

There is an evolution in shopper marketing. No longer can campaigns be on a singular mission to simply move a shopper from consideration to purchase at a retail destination. Today the instant gratification from data networks and mobile devices has changed the way we shop for everything.

Marketing requires a deeper understanding of how, when and where shoppers want to shop. While sales lift is still a key metric, the social dynamics of shopping and influence require a more holistic approach to build brand engagement and measurable sales.

How do you change with your shoppers? Enter MarketingLab. We mine, dig and research until we discover something new. A new insight. A new idea. A new energy to make shoppers care, act and share. That’s honest to the brand and remarkable in its ability to drive sales.
